Question:

What is the difference between affect and effect?

Inactive
Wanda R.
Answer:

Affect is the action being done and effect is the result of that action. Sometimes it is difficult to figure out how to use the two properly but you can think of it this way: A for action, affect; E for emotion, effect. An exception to this rule is when using effect as a verb for example, "to effect a change."

Question:

When an author uses a color to describe something in the setting of a story, why do they do this?

Inactive

Answer:

In some cases, the author has a deeper meaning they are trying to convey by using specific colors in descriptions, but in most cases, there isn't any deeper meaning behind it. Sometimes the author just picks a random color, and the only way to really know is to ask the author. Unfortunately in the case of older books, this isn't possible since the author is no longer with us but newer works are different.

Question:

Why is good pronunciation important?

Answer:

It is important to have good pronunciation in order to avoid miscommunication. A native English speaker should be able to figure out the mispronounced word based on the sentence it is being used in as long as most of the other words are pronounced properly. In the case of a non-native English speaker, it becomes even more important to have good pronunciation because they would usually be unable to figure the word out based on the surrounding words.
